Is there summat I've missed here as I've no idea what the original post was alluding to. :(

Anyways, "An inspector calls" for me, Alastair Sim is absolutely superb in it.

Ok

When CKN initially locked the thatcher topic I posted that my favourite film was the wizard of Oz. think of the songs from that film -there is one particular one that I thought was apt.

I seriously though that this wasn't that sutble a was expecting a telling off by the mods.

By the looks if it only Chuffer and maybe Futtocks got the subtlety

Ah, thanks. Never seen the film but I'm aware of some of the songs from it, certainly the one you're thinking if.

Nah, there will have been plenty of us who knew exactly what the reference was.

I love silly films.

Blazing Saddles

Young Frankenstein

Life of Brian

When Mars Attacks

Edit to add.

Early Woody Allen bonkers stuff like Bananas

Nothing wrong with daft stuff, although I find 'Mars attacks!' goes on a bit too long and could benefited from a snappier editing job. Woody Allen's early stuff like 'Bananas', 'Sleeper' and 'Everything you wanted to know' are great fun.

Once upon a time in America is also one of my favourites, it's about 4 or 5 hours long and de Niro is my favourite actor. Also can't beat a good war film and apocalypse now is an epic, born on the 4th of July is a great war movie too.

This might be controversial, or maybe not, but I actually enjoy the first half of the film (with the young actors playing the parts) a little more than the second. Some of those kids were really good!

Lawrence of Arabia is epic enough on a regular-size TV screen - I wish I'd seen it in the cinema when it came out.

I know what you mean, some of those young actors were great and so was the story of them all growing up. I only stumbled on this film by accident one night comming home from a night out, I think it was on channel 4 at about 2 o'clock in the morning and couldn't knock it off.
